written to the two women with the two unleashed Pit Bulls (You know VERY
well who you are).
your UNLEASHED Pit Bulls through our yard as they attacked our pet
chickens. You were VERY aware that they had killed our chicken
Peggy-Sue, and you were well aware that they maimed our Rooster Sammy.
My husband was able to find Sammy “A Bloody Mess” hiding in the woods
long after you were gone.
husband confronted you about the chickens you told him you were going to
catch your dogs and come back. However you had NO intention of doing
that. Instead you put your dogs into your cars and you drove away. (2
cars, one with NH plates, the other possible Mass. Plates).
Had it been
a child would you just drive off?? Someone’s dog would you just drive
off?? I don’t blame the dogs for what happened, I blame the two of you.
Who in their right mind would allow two pit bulls to run free in a
neighborhood?? You two are the reason that pit bulls have such a bad
name. It is YOU, the owners, fault! Your negligence caused this, but we
didn’t get so much as an apology, not even a simple I’m sorry. You
caused this damage and you left like cowards. I hope you have learned a
little bit about responsibility from this, however I really doubt it. I
hope the next time it’s not a child. Our chickens were in their own yard
minding their own business. You and your unleashed pit bulls had no
business being in it. Cowards!
